OMB Number: 1660-0114.

Form Titles and Numbers: FEMA Form 089-5, PSGP Investment Justification.

Abstract: The previous version of FEMA Form 089-5 is outdated and has become cumbersome with subsequent program explanations within the notice of funding opportunity explaining the type of information required.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 17,154 hours.

Estimated Cost: The estimated annual cost to respondents for the hour burden is $1,094,112.60. There are no annual costs to respondents' operations and maintenance costs for technical services. There are no annual start-up or capital costs. The cost to the Federal Government is $770,401.
